FAQ

How much does it cost?
It depends on what types of groceries are used, how often you use the service and the complexity of the recipes you choose. In general, each chef-prepared meal is similar in cost to eating in a medium-priced family restaurant. However, using more meals lowers the per-meal price.

What kind of food is available?
Anything you want. We can make breakfast foods, single-serving lunches, snacks and full meals. You can give me your favourite recipes, or just tell me what you do and don’t like. I have tested recipes for just about any type of dish, meal or snack food, with lower fat and vegetarian options for most.

Do you do parties? Can you stay and serve at my party?
No, these are jobs for a caterer. However, we do provide “almost catering” for our ongoing clients; We will prepare party food ahead of time and store it in your fridge or freezer. All you have to do is thaw, heat and serve when your friends or family arrive. The cost is less than a caterer, and you can pretend you did it yourself! We can also do your Christmas baking, leave you the beginnings of a great holiday dinner for your family or go on a quick shopping trip to feed those unexpected guests.

Can you do the cooking in your own kitchen and deliver it to my place? Do you have to come to my house?
Unfortunately, health legislation prohibits me from cooking in my kitchen and then delivering it to your house. By cooking in your home, I provide a service and not a product, which does not fall under the health code. You may feel more comfortable being at home when I arrive or leave, and that can certainly be arranged. Having the chef work in your home significantly lowers the cost of the service, and leaves your kitchen smelling like a bistro or a bakery.

How do I know you’re a good cook?
You can read some of my client testimonials or I can provide you with the phone number of a family that currently uses my service, and they can give you a reference and tell you how my service has made their lives easier.

What other services do you provide?
In addition to our regular services, The Magic Fridge team can shop for all your groceries, not just those used in the service visit. No more running to the store for pet food, snacks, fabric softener or light bulbs. Just give us a list… and leave the rest to us.
